 Participants will hear from an array of water sector partners including the San Jose Water Company, the California Department of Public Health (CA DPH), the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and U.S. EPA. The following perspectives will be offered:  update on pandemic influenza from the healthcare perspective; state planning and preparedness efforts in partnership with utilities; and utility lessons learned from planning and preparing for pandemic influenza.
